Samuel L Session liveset at Sterne [04.06.2012]

Sweden’s veteran DJ and producer Samuel L Session aka Samuel Larsson makes his first appearance on Detelefunk with the “Blue Ripple EP". A gem of a single that keeps things deep, yet for the dancefloor, showing his unique blend of the Techno & House genres. Starting production back in 1997 with his own Cycle imprint he broke into the music scene with releases such as “In Your Box” & “Check Out This I Bring". It wasn’t long before his production skills were in demand from many other labels, and he released singles on labels such as Kanzleramt, Phont, Hardgroove, and Monoid. As things started to take off he started his 2nd label, SLS, on which he had even more success with tracks like “Merengue". As his production developed he decided in 2006 start a new label, Klap Klap, to focus more on the direction his music was taking him, a funkier, deeper sound. This resulted in yet another worldwide hit with “Can You Relate” featuring the Detroit Grand Pubahs own Paris The Black FU, being picked up by DJs such as Steve Rachmad, Joris Voorn, Slam to name a few. Remix requests soon followed getting attention with his remixes of Funk D’ Void’s “Diablo” on Soma + Blake Baxter w/ Trevor Rocklife’s “Visions Of You” on Carl Cox’s label Intec. Producers such as Kevin Saunderson, Jerome Sydenham, Audio Soul Project, Len Faki and Alexi Delano among others, all had their music tweaked and remade by the man. Blue Ripple is a groovy tech house extravaganza, teasing throughout with alluring strings. While Staccato & Odyssey pick the pace up more and head for those late night peak time dancefloors with, driving kicks and filtered stabs.
